Unformatted Document Text:  Relationship Orientation and Jealousy 14 communal orientation regarding positive responses to feeling jealous (t(69)=4.67, p<.001). High communal oriented scores (M=47.50, SD=9.03) were significantly more positive than low communal oriented scores (M=37.28, SD=9.41). The results suggested that individuals high in communal orientation make more attempts at evoking jealousy as well as respond positively to feelings of jealousy. Individual high in exchange orientation do not respond positively to feelings of jealousy. However, these individuals make attempts at evoking jealousy from their relational partner. Study One: Discussion The first study examined evoking jealousy within romantic relationships from a reciprocity perspective. The intentional elicitation of jealousy was first examined with high or low exchange orientation, finding that individuals low in exchange orientation made fewer attempts to evoke jealousy. When an individual is high in exchange orientation, evoking jealousy appears to be a method used to receive rewards such as more attention and time spent with the partner. The results are congruent with Murstein et al. (1977) explanation that people high in exchange orientation expect immediate reciprocity of rewards, and develop negative feelings when rewards are not given. Evoking jealousy may be a tool that can be used to elicit rewards. Clark and Mills (1979) explained communal orientation as individuals being concerned about the welfare of the other and expecting the other to be aware of their needs. When individual’s needs are not being recognized, negative feelings develop. High communal oriented individuals expect their needs to be noticed.

Study One: Discussion
The first study examined evoking jealousy within romantic relationships from a
reciprocity perspective. The intentional elicitation of jealousy was first examined with high or
low exchange orientation, finding that individuals low in exchange orientation made fewer
attempts to evoke jealousy. When an individual is high in exchange orientation, evoking
jealousy appears to be a method used to receive rewards such as more attention and time spent
with the partner. The results are congruent with Murstein et al. (1977) explanation that people
high in exchange orientation expect immediate reciprocity of rewards, and develop negative
feelings when rewards are not given. Evoking jealousy may be a tool that can be used to elicit
rewards.
